Unlike most of the players in the 2014 Kansas State recruiting class, Huntersville (N.C.) Hopewell wide receiver Dominique Heath has only been on campus in Manhattan one time. That means he hasn't had a chance to meet many of his future teammates. He's planning on changing that this weekend on his official visit.
"I've talked to a few of them on social media or via text," Heath said. "But I really haven't met a lot of them. I'm looking forward to getting back out there."
Earlier this month one Kansas State commit Heath was close with, fellow North Carolina prospect Michael Stevens, flipped from the Wildcats to N.C. State. Even though the two had planned on going to school together, Heath said nothing has changed regarding his commitment.
"I heard about then and I called him and he told me he going to N.C. State," Heath said. "I was a little made at first but I know it's cool and I understand where he's coming from. I still joke with him a little bit but I know he had to make the decision that was best for him."
Heath said Stevens changing his mind won't have any impact on his decision.
"The biggest thing for me was when I went down there for an unofficial visit I felt like I was at home," he said. "Especially with the way that me and Coach Coleman connected. He was a smaller guy and worked his way to the NFL and all of that and he fits like I will fit well in their system. He and I talk as much as we can and we have a great relationship."
Plenty of other schools have coming calling for Heath over the past few weeks, but he said he wants to stick with the school that had him as their first choice.
"I think the biggest thing for me was I felt like when I committed I was going to stay for good," he said. "If they weren't coming after me back then, they didn't want me. If I was their second choice I'm not interested. I just felt like if you came to me first that means you wanted me the most. I said to myself when I commit that's it and I'm not going to change my mind."
